I use 2-3 drops, which is ~equal to a cigarette (10-15 puffs) and I count how many times I "drip" per day so as to track how much I'm using the ecig. (you can calculate how many drops you are putting into your cartridge and divide by 2.5 to get an approx # of cigs you've chained, or time how long it takes you to go through a single full cartridge so that you can guesstimate how much you are using if you're switching between cartridges...I use ~1cig in 5-10 min, or 1 in 7.5min if I'm doing a count over a span of time)
I step down my nicotine level after I'm comfortable with my current step down, and see how it goes from there. I try not to be comfortable for more then a week at a time. There have been times when a really bad craving required more "use" - so I used a level or two less then what I'm currently on, or if I just need a jolt to "reset" I use it 1x with a level I came down from and then switch back the next time I use it so as not to get readjusted back to a previous level.
Sounds tedious but the practice, once you're in motion, is easier then in words and its always in the direction of lowering while staying off the "real" thing. hth

True freedom from the addiction to smoking is to cease "puffing the nicotine" as well as ceasing the nicotine and ceasing the puffing....
Get ride of all THAT and you can begin to truly walk in the freedom of the quit...."one day at a time" NOT ONE PUFF.....will put you behind the above insanity and into living life on life's terms—addiction-free....Now I know some of you e-smokers here SAY you are trying to get off of it, however with no definitive "end" there really isn't an "end" and your body still has the drug in it that it continually craves and also your body will forever crave the FULL amount of nicotine—putting you in continual withdrawal....I did not make up the laws of addiction—free yourselves asap from the puffing of the nicotine and you can truly be free and truly quit....

I now have to work on getting rid of the ritual. I am so pleased this little prop has released me from tobacco. I don't think i could have stuck giving up without it. I have no desire at all to use tobacco.
